Acts 7:55-60

CEB 55 But Stephen, enabled by the Holy Spirit, stared into heaven and saw God's majesty and Jesus standing at God's right side. NRS 55 But filled with the Holy Spirit, he gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. CEB 56 He exclaimed, "Look! I can see heaven on display and the Human One standing at God's right side!" NRS 56 "Look," he said, "I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!" CEB 57 At this, they shrieked and covered their ears. Together, they charged at him, NRS 57 But they covered their ears, and with a loud shout all rushed together against him. CEB 58 threw him out of the city, and began to stone him. The witnesses placed their coats in the care of a young man named Saul. NRS 58 Then they dragged him out of the city and began to stone him; and the witnesses laid their coats at the feet of a young man named Saul. CEB 59 As they battered him with stones, Stephen prayed, "Lord Jesus, accept my life!" NRS 59 While they were stoning Stephen, he prayed, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit." CEB 60 Falling to his knees, he shouted, "Lord, don't hold this sin against them!" Then he died. NRS 60 Then he knelt down and cried out in a loud voice, "Lord, do not hold this sin against them." When he had said this, he died.
